The joy in being busy

I seriously can't believe how quickly this year is flying by.  It seems like the work weeks last for 5 minutes, and the weekends for 36 seconds exactly.  I'm terrified of what will happen once a baby or two enters the picture, I anticipate that a week will pass in 48 seconds, and in 2 shakes of a lamb's tail, our kid(s) will be out of the house and telling me this very same story as I nod my head in understanding.

It's back to being my busy time of month, with rent collection and all of that goodness.  I am really looking forward to it, I enjoy when my work is so busy that I forget to take my breaks, and I lose myself in my work.  The busy-ness of my work this week is even better, because Friday afternoon Ammon and I will be leaving for a weekend on the ski slopes.  I could think of no better way to cap of a busy, hectic week than getting out of town, staying in a hotel, and skiing to our heart's content.  

This amazing vacation is causing some hassles with my day-to day workout schedule, though.  I am going to have to get all 4 runs and my rest day in during the week, leaving plenty of energy for skiing.  My long run this week is 6 miles, and I plan on completing it Wednesday.  I got new shoes on Saturday, and am excited to try them on clean surfaces this week to see if I have less foot pain with my longer runs.

They're just so dang pretty.  I'm nervous about the white though, they always get dirty so quickly and easily.

Oh, yes.  This is going to be an AWESOME week for all of us.  I can just tell right now.  What about this week are you looking forward to?


  1. The best type of work week is a busy one. I love when I am not watching the clock at all, it's just all the sudden time to pack up. How fun that you have a ski trip to look forward to! I love weekends away :)

  2. Fun! Where are you going skiing?

    I totally know what you mean about some weeks are busy and it's much better that way (at work anyway). Sometimes at work I have NOTHING to do, and it makes the day go so so so SLOWLY.

  3. I'm going to try to run every day this week, but we'll see how this goes. Ugh.

    Love the new shoes! And you totally deserve this vacation - I hope you guys have a total blast!

  4. I love getting new running shoes :) Hope you break them in quickly!


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
